Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan was on target for South Korea in a 2-0 win against Chile, with a goal of the highest quality.
The 26-year-old started for his nation in the friendly match at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium, having also started against Brazil last Thursday.
Hwang had recorded an assist against Brazil, and it did not take him long to contribute against La Roja.
In the 12th minute, the Wanderers man picked up the ball in a left wing position.
He dropped his shoulder and cut inside, before unleashing an absolute rocket of a shot right into the far corner.
There was absolutely no chance for Chile stopper Fernando de Paul, with Hwang’s strike almost putting a hole in the net.
It was a fantastic hit, and perhaps one that had a bit of frustration in it.
It was Hwang’s first goal since scoring for Wolves against Arsenal all the way back in February.
The star, who will turn his loan move to Molineux permanent this summer, really struggled for form in the second half of 2021/22.
He picked up a hamstring injury in December which put him on the sidelines for a couple of months.
That may or may not have had an affect, but Hwang’s finish to the season compared to his start was hugely disappointing.
And he got plenty of chances from Bruno Lage to turn things around.
But it just wouldn’t really happen for him, and fans are now expecting a massive improvement in 2022/23.
Hwang Hee-chan’s goal for South Korea against Chile is a reminder of his talent
Hwang’s goal against Chile was absolutely superb.
No goalkeeper in the world would have saved it, and it is a reminder of how lethal he can be.
At one point, Hwang was the most clinical player in the Premier League last season.
He has the potential to produce some really good finishes.
Hopefully at the start of next season, he can get back to the kind of level he was showing upon first joining the club.
Who knows what was going on in that second half of the season, but moments like against Chile are a reminder of his quality. It’s just about showing it consistently.
